Bepkong Resource

The 50km2 district is part of Azumah's Wa Gold Project in north west Ghana.  These licences encompass some 150 strike kilometres of prospective Birimian greenstone – the same rocks that are host to a majority of Ghana's major gold deposits.

Bepkong was a "blind" discovery arising from the follow-up of strong gold-in-soil anomalism, with no outcrop or old artisanal workings to lead geologists into the area.  Further high-grade vein-hosted mineralisation has been discovered during 2011 in the 2km zone separating the Bepkong and Kunche deposits, approximately 300m south of the main Bepkong preliminary optimised pit perimeter.

The Bepkong district remains largely under-explored, and Azumah's drilling results confirm that there is every opportunity to discover and delineate additional resources in the district.

  • JORC Code, NI 43-101 reported Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource estimate of 3.92Mt at 1.59g/t Au for 200,000 oz and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 1.17Mt at 1.17g/t Au for 44,000 oz.
  • 82% of contained gold in Measured and Indicated category grading 1.59g/t gold.
  • It is apparent from the completed 2011 and 2012 infill drilling programme that robust mineralisation extends well below current planned pit floors.
  • Mineral Resource extends to over 200m below surface and remains open at depth.
  • At Bepkong North, shallow wide-spaced reconnaissance aircore drilling has highlighted an interpreted mineralised corridor extending over 3km to the north of the Bepkong deposit.
